[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

Remove "None" as a value for any property, it's not valid. If you want to assign a blank value to a property, just leave the value blank, eg.

Code:
extrajson.albums =

(the most strage thing is, even if finish caching once and try one more time then start from 0 - when im use small "c" )
Code:
cache.artwork = thumb, fanart, clearlogo, poster, landscape, extrafanart, cast.thumb, characterart

Don't set the cache.artwork property unless you only want to cache the specified artwork types (and ignore everything else). The default value is for it to be blank, which means that all artwork types will be considered for caching.

The reason you're not caching anything is because you've specified only specific artwork types to be cached, and by not including all your artwork types you've excluded artwork types you are now trying to cache. From the logfile:
Code:

Likewise with the qa.art.movies - it's only going to QA those artwork types, which probably isn't what you intend. Leave it blank, or better yet, don't specify it at all.

Basically, just set your cfg file to the following and remove the rest:
Code:
webserver.port = 80
download.threads = 5
extrajson.movies = trailer, streamdetails, file
cache.castthumb = yes
cache.extra = yes
logfile = /storage/test.log

I've left the extrajson.movies property in there assuming you want that property to be set and know why it's being set. If not, remove that too. I've also removed any property that you were setting with a default value or that isn't a valid property (the qa.file and qa.rating properties are not valid, and are just being ignored).

Enabling "cache.extra" will enable all three of cache.extrathumbs, cache.extrafanart and cache.videoextras.

My advice is to always add nothing to the configuration file unless you know exactly what effect the additional property has. Only set what you need to, and nothing more.

I am using texturecache in Pi running raspBMC to put my screen in sleep mode (rbphdmi option).
It was working quite well but since some days (new version?) I often see my screen in non sleep mode. After crosscheck, it appears that the texturecache process is no more running.
I activated the log but I don't see something specific in it (a bit long to reproduce here)

whats happened to the rest of the thread?

Dunno, looks like some temporary glitch/corruption - fingers crossed it's OK now...

If you can upload the log (the output from @logfile) that would be useful (upload it to pastebin.com), as would "grep rbphdmi /var/log/messages (or /var/log/syslog - whatever is appropriate on raspbmc).

texturecache.py rbphdmi will quit if it is unable to re-connect to xbmc after 12 attempts (at 15 second intervals) - other than that I'm not sure why it would not be running, unless it never actually started after the initial boot.

Thanks, if that is the complete log then it suggests that the JSON communication is not commencing (where it listens for notifications from the XBMC client), or your attempt to run texturecache.py is exiting almost immediately for some unknown reason.

Try running the same texturecache.py command from the command line, not your normal boot startup script, and note any output you see which may indicate why it is failing to start properly.

If you add "@debug=yes" when starting "texturecache.py rbphdmi", you should see additional details written to /var/log/messages (or maybe /var/log/syslog) which may help diagnose what is happening. Obviously if you run it from the command line, you'll see the debug statements appear in your console window.

ok will do that (sorry for time to answer, the forum email alert doesn't seem to work...)

So again, texturecache is no more running.
Here is what I have in @logfile: http://pastebin.com/22Myg3Z9
Here is what I have when I redirect stand output to a file: http://pastebin.com/tMSejPuE

Maybe there is something useful being output to stderr (like a stacktrace) but I'm not seeing any reason for it not to be running in the two logs - it's either being killed or is crashing (but as to why I have no clue at this stage) Sad

mmm shame... tell me if you see something that I can do to test. What I can say is that 1 month ago it was more stable...

just wondering: texturecache seems to be a powerful tool and rbthdmi just a small subset of it. When I use the rbthdmi parameter, is it just doing the screen saver / off stuff or also the things that texturecache is originaly aimed?

All I can ask you to test is running it from the command line (not redirecting to a file) and see if it crashes with an error.

I'll release an updated version shortly which will trap any unhandled exception and log it (if logging is enabled) but right now I can't think what could be the problem as it's working fine here (on OpenELEC).

Just the screensaver stuff (plus checking if it's the latest version and auto-updating if necessary, all of the JSON communication, configuration processing, resource checks and error handling, and finally logging) so it's actually re-using several of the existing classes/functions. If you're wondering if it could be split out into a smaller script, yes absolutely but to me it's not worth it due to the significant duplication of code. Of course I could split texturecache.py up into about a dozen smaller inter-dependent class files, which would make development a hell of a lot easier, but then automatic updates and initial installation would become a problem.

Yep but I log using putty/ssh and if I run texturecache in the command line in foreground, then when putty will disconnect (it happens after some hours, or my PC will go in sleep mode), the process will be killed (unless I am wrong?).
What I can do is to redirect the stderr + stdout to a file??

@MilhouseVH I just found it out this and you did very good job with this script. It's perfect for clean thumb cache and update imdb ratings for my database.

Thank you for your great work.

Is this how you normally run rbphdmi, from the command line, or is this ssh disconnect occurring only while you are diagnosing this problem?

Try:
Code:
./texturecache.py rbphdmi @bin.tvservice=/opt/vc/bin/tvservice @logfile=/home/pi/texturecache.log @debug=yes 1>/home/pi/tcout.log 2>/home/pi/tcerr.log &

the "&" on the end may allow the process to continue running even if your SSH session disconnects.

Glad you like it! Smile

Except this days for debugging purposes, I run it from rc.local
